It is the staff who make this hostel special. I stayed here 4 times and started to feel like I had a second home in Quito. On the flip side, the Historic Centre of Quito can be quite a dangerous place to stay and it's unsafe to go out on foot after dark in the surrounding area.
On our first visit, we arrived around 9pm and didn't feel safe enough to go out for a meal. However the guy working at the hostel found us some snacks and promised to take us to breakfast the next morning. He actually got up specially early (around 6am as we had a bus to catch), to ensure we got a good feed. After that, we came back every time we found ourselves in Quito, and were also able to leave our packs at the hostel for several weeks (at low cost) whilst we went to different parts of Ecuador.
If you want to stay in the Historic Centre of Quito and are travelling on a budget, then this hostel is an excellent choice.
